Season finale news:

 
Quote
From tomorrow's Comedy Central Press Release:
Stan Marsh is a washed-up fourth grader in an all-new episode of "South Park" on Wednesday, November 15th at 10:00 P.M. on Comedy Central


Stan Marsh is haunted by memories of his pee wee hockey days in an all-new "South Park" entitled, "Stanley's Cup" premiering Wednesday, November 15 at 10:00 p.m. on Comedy Central.

Stan Marsh has hit rock bottom. He's got no job, no bicycle and his only way out of a bad situation, is to coach the local pee wee hockey team. Once a hotshot pee wee hockey player himself, Stan Marsh has tried to put those days behind him. But he's still living with the memory of how let his team down when he missed the winning shot in the big game. Now, he's about to find out that being a coach means facing your past. He's determined to show his kids what it's like to be a winner!

Third season without a Christmas special (though let's face it, it's still only half-way through November, so fair enough), and this plot sounds very much in the same vein of You Got F'ed in the A, The Losing Edge, etc... Why do all the sport episodes seem to centre on Stan?

Oh well, the rest of Season 10 Part 2's been awesome, so I'm definitely looking forward to this one.  smile

Beamer: I went over the episode list really quick, and there've been about five sports episodes over the course of the show (if you count Conjoined Fetus Lady, which had a sports B-plot).  Stan's the focus of three of them (Asspen and the two you mentioned,) so it isn't all that disproportionate.

What I find weird is that this episode's plot sounds almost exactly like Fingerbang, just replace "hockey" with "boy band."  The jokes will be different, but the focus will still probably be on Randy being a complete loser, and the fact that he's always been a complete loser.  Which is funny, don't get me wrong.

Ummm, what? The press release doesn't mention Randy at all - it says that STAN'S the one who used to be an expert pee wee hockey player. He'll probably be coaching the kindergarteners or something.

I'm sure Ike will be heavily involved... he is Canadian, and of the right age to be coached by Stan. Perhaps some conflict between Stan and Kyle, or Ike?

Prophet!

Well, the episode was ok. The plot wasn't very well developed, and they kind of got tight on time ( like most episodes) but the ending was kind of shitty.

It was worth a good 3/5 though/.

You know, I enjoy Matt and Trey tearing into clichés as much as the next guy, and I liked most of this episode, but the ending just...wasn't funny.  I dunno, maybe it was the kid dying of cancer, or the fact that I was expecting everything that happened, which is unusual for this show nowadays.  Also, the Stan-centeredness was a bit much - of the main characters, we had Stan for the entire episode, and Kyle for all of ten seconds, and that was it.  I like Stan, but he's not as good for jokes when he's by himself.

On more positive notes, the kindergarteners were precious, and I also approve of voice-over guy stalking Stan.  Speaking of which, is this the first time the official promo was quoted verbatim in the episode?  I think so.

I'm dissapointed that more of the Detroit/Colorado players weren't Canadian. Cause, you know, a lot of them are in real life, especially Colorado, whose offense consists almost entirely of Canadians. Oh well, I just thought it would have been a funny touch.

I liked the episode, and I thought the ending was hilarious, like some people have said eariler though, it seemed almost a little too compressed. I hope they do more two parters.

Why is it all these season finales lately only revolve around one character?  First the talent show episode about Jimmy, then the Bloody Mary episode that revolved around Stan and his father, and now this one that revolved around Stan.  No Cartman, no Kyle, or Kenny.  I didn't like this episode at all, I found it to be kind of serious and not very funny.  Too bad it's the season finale, I was expecting maybe 3 more episodes.  I didn't even watch the whole episode anyway.  I give it a 1/5.

I mean, the episode was all right, but the ending came up a little quickly, within like 3 mins it was decided they were playing the red wings and at the end of the 3 the kid was dead. I mean, like, what about Stan's bike? It might have been better to see him getting it back, and then when he pulls out of the place he gets hit by a truck or something.

i don't know much of anything about the south park situation or how it's going overall, but i'm sure i'm not the only one very dissapointed with it lately? too much shock value.. not enough of what originally made it funny... i don't know, these latest eps have left me confused and rarely laughing.

Actually, if you want my opinion, shock value is what originally made South Park funny.  When that got old (after a season or two) they gradually focused more on satire, which is the aspect of the show I like best.  Although sometimes the 'satire' is just making fun of a group that's funny but doesn't necessarily deserve to be satirized, like the Mormons or WoW players, it's still funny.

Like I said, I didn't particularly like the last episode, but most of this season's been pretty great.  Cartoon Wars and Make Love Not Warcraft were particularly good.

The season has been really good.  However, the only episodes I didn't like was that one about the "Hardly Boys", "Towelie on Oprah", and the season finale. Plus I agree with Nerd-o-rama that it's shock value that makes South Park a gem.

In the next season I hope there's a new schoolbus driver and a new cafeteria chef, not that anyone can replace Chef, anyway.  Mrs. Crabtree never was replaced.

You really didn't pay attention to my post, did you?  I prefer the satire, it's just that the satire grew out of the fact that their original shock-humor style got old really, really fast.  Not that new episodes don't also use shock value to make a point...

Ah, fuck it, now I've confused myself.  To the bar!

That episode wasn't a season finale.   no no

Anyway, I thought that Stanley's Cup was pretty disappointing. I'm used to tasteless humour like that from the show, but they seemed to take it too far here, and when it's not funny, it's just not fun to watch. I saw pretty much everything coming, too... The only good jokes were the movie voice-over guy, the idea of Stan's bike being towed, and the first game the kids played when nothing happened. Overall, a very mediocre end to what would have otherwise been a perfect run of episodes.

The announcer got annoying pretty quickly, but the whole "Cancer" thing was a pretty solid joke. Although there is nothing funny about cancer, I laughed my balls off.
